Hi Bees 🙂
A little bit of background: I have been dealing with an incredibly low libido over the last two years – low as in nonexistent. I’ve talked with my doctor and asked about switching birth control but they told me I’m already on a really low dose and that they don’t think it’s the birth control. I even tried going off of birth control completely for 5 months and it didn’t make a difference. I also had my thyroid tested (there’s a family history) in case there was something up there, but there wasn’t. I went though something very traumatic two years ago and I do think that that initially played a part in my low libido, but I’ve been in counseling and have been feeling much better around that area of my life. The libido issue has caused a lot of heartache for me and my husband.
Over the last week my libido has spiked back up. I feel like myself again. I’m so excited, but also really confused. I feel like I have no control over my body. I’m also terrified this is only going to last for a couple of weeks. Does anyone else have any experience with an unpredictable libido? I’ve also dropped a couple of lbs w/o changing anything diet or exercise wise. When my libido first dropped I started putting on weight, so I’m wondering if there’s any sort of medical condition that could be related?
I’m trying to live in the moment and just enjoy how close my husband and I feel right now, but I really am scared it will be gone as quickly as it came.
